Bridges history and ethnography to explore stories of Malagasy ancestry and African American identity.

“Wendy Wilson-Fall has skillfully turned intriguing memories of ancestors’ origins into a fascinating, well-researched story informed, notably, by history, anthropology, sociology, and psychology. Memories of Madagascar and Slavery in the Black Atlantic shows us a new, exciting way of researching, interpreting and writing the complex history of enslaved people in the Atlantic world and beyond.”
